Entrance Meditation, July 1, 1995

The world wakes up with me -- I am the Watcher.
Like the hawk I soar
Over mountains and green lands.

The Buddha's face smiles gently
And the laughter in his cheeks
Is sweet and childlike.

When I was a child, I looked
In muddy ponds and threw bread.
Golden flashes, fish fins, broke the surface,
Pale spongy offerings swept beneath the currents.

Fins break the surface of my deep water
And I catch golden glimpses.

Who is this writer?

Buddha's laughter fills my cheeks.
The wind in the trees is the ocean sound
Of waves tumbling on sand.

All the world is alive
And it wakes in me.
